I friggin scratched up the bumper of my new 2006 S40 T5.Minimal damage, but it still costs.<p> Auto body estimate: $595<p>Should I just get a new bumper? Did anybody here ever replace their bumper and knows the ball prk figure on what it would cost me? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Also just a suggestion....<p>Tell us if it was the front or rear bumper, I just assumed it was the front.

I wish I was smart enough for ebay when I banged up my rear bumper! Replacement, paint and install was $800 from Volvo, ouch!

Hmmm. I suggest getting another estimate. My wife recently backed into a guard rail with her S60 and a local body shop fixed and painted it for $250. It looks perfect.

If you're "lucky" like us, wait until someone hits you! <p>May '06 - S40 rear ended. <br>July '06 - teenager in Bronco backs into MDX.<p>October '06 - buy '73 F-150 with plenty o' rust, girders for bumpers, gun rack, a minimum of 7 NRA stickers and a W sticker for "good" luck.

Re: (jclaib)

Thanks. jclaib<p>I'll get a couple of estimates as well. The damage is minor but there is a little ding that would need to get smoothened out.<p>Nice pic. <p>I love my ride. I never thought I would buy a Volvo, but the S40's are HOT. <p>Are you going to tint your windows? <p>
